Additional policies

✂ VINTAGE CLOTHING CONDITION

Vintage clothing is not new so it’s important that you understand the condition of a garment. On some occasions, you will find items that have not been worn which are deadstock or new old stock (NOS). But, for the most part, vintage has been previously worn.

MINT: An item is as perfect and pristine as when it was originally made and shows no sign of wear (mint condition is rare for vintage clothing).
**Please note that Mint Unworn/Deadstock/New Old Stock items may sometimes have storage marks (due to age/elements) on the fabric. This does not constitute as "wear" as the item was never worn.

NEAR MINT: An item shows only the slightest signs of wear.

EXCELLENT: An item shows typical signs of wear due to occasional use.

VERY GOOD: An item is considered wearable but has some surface flaws (staining or soiling, for example).

GOOD: An item is wearable but cannot be returned to excellent condition even if repairs are made.

Of course, the older a piece of clothing is, the more likely it will display indications of its age. Signs of wear should be expected. Although condition ranks as a main buying consideration for vintage clothing, it’s not as crucial for older items.

✂ IS MY DRESS CLEAN?

Items are always sent to you in a ready to wear condition. "Estate fresh" garments are never in ready to wear condition so that means we take the extra time/care to either carefully launder and iron our items, steam, press or have them dry cleaned before sending.
The only garments that we do not clean are deadstock/new old stock garments that have not been worn. Collectors prefer these in "Estate fresh" condition. However, if you purchase a deadstock item from us and would prefer it cleaned before sending out, just let us know. There is no charge for this...just request this.
We NEVER use items such as Febreeze or Dryel as those are not cleaning agents. They are only used to mask odors and will leave dirt and residue in your vintage garment...so trust us, we know our stuff :o)
*NOTE*
Items are stored with cedar and lavender sachets to keep away moths etc. Please do not purchase if you are allergic to any of those.
If you are also allergic to moth ball odor, "old clothing smell" or "old lady smell", you should not be purchasing vintage...period.
Although we clean every item before listing, vintage clothing has had a life before reaching to us and we cannot be held responsible for your allergic reactions.
